The New Tappan Zee Bridge

Not crazy about how it was named the Mario Cuomo Bridge (passed in wee hours in secret by his son), but official opening is tomorrow, in my mind, it'll be the new Tappan Zee Bridge. Maybe the Nyack - Tarrytown bridge?   http://www.newnybridge.com/ready-and-waiting-new-bridge-prepared-for-friday-nights-traffic-shift/

Observations from Northern Trust Tuesday

Disparaging remarks from some players on Sean Foley Talk about hotels and points and yawn, boring. No charging stations. Momofuku here too, same as US Open (tennis). Generally, students of the game hover around the short game area. One spectator struck up a conversation w/a player about pitching. Haven't been to a tournament in awhile, radar everywhere. You can park behind Starbucks, walk across the coliseum to the buses (10 minutes, just like the US Open - tennis),

Whenever I see these modified grapes, I buy them

There are the ones that look like chili peppers and the ones that taste like cotton candy are my favorite. These were at Trader Joe's yesterday: They're ok, cotton candy grapes still my favorite. Sugar Crunch has like a "dry" taste to it, it's a little different from your standard variety green grape, sweeter and harder obviously. I'd still buy it again, because you don't see these everyday, but always on the lookout for cotton candy grapes.

The Bicycle Thread

All things bicycle here. This guy installed a Loud Bicycle. It's basically a car horn on a bike. Folks, don't be surprised if you hear a car horn and a bike is behind you. He also vlogged his ride via his helmet cam. LOOK AT ALL THOSE BICYCLISTS! You can hear him use the Loud Bicycle at around 05:54. I wondered if the drivers even noticed in time.

Range design for the future

It annoys me when you go to a range and you can't take face on video. It's one thing if the range is full and you can't place your camera because the stall in front of you is occupied. That's fine. It's when ranges build dividers that block an important part of the swing, impact, some build stalls that block nearly everything. It's twenty freaking seventeen, and video is available to the masses, hell, you could even say most people have high speed video available now. In H forking D. No, in 4 f*

Bird up close at Bryce Canyon

People don't listen to the signs, feed the birds anyway. No, he still didn't fly away after I stopped recording. I also recited some Edgar Allen Poe at it, don't think it was appreciated.

Reddit rant

Commenting on a post of a before and after video, one redditor asked what was the difference. Apparently he/she saw none. This was the before and after top of backswing positions. And the guy got upvotes.   The place is ADD.

Wow, maybe more and more people are using video

No one at the ranges I go to make use of video, and if they do, they're doing it wrong, I'm one of the rare few who brings a tripod. Looking at the Facebook page of a popular instructor today, and it's the dead of winter, there are tons of people jury rigging whatever they have to practice indoors - school gyms, basements, backyards - from all over the place, US, UK, Canada. They're all using video, some high frame rate, although their angles could be better. So maybe I'm just in an unrepresenta

    • Which is exactly what I’ve been trying to tell him all this time!! If he gonna be on the team, he’s gonna have to play tournaments in the summer, by the coach’s request. He hasn’t been listening to me that well. He probably practiced twice all summer, and even that was for only half an hour or so. To his credit though, he came out and played with me today. Scores to come later tonight! 
    • Oh brother!  He's a North Carolinian... you play in the heat.  I grew up in St. Louis.  If you want to play golf you've got to play in the heat and, in the Spring, you've got to play in the wind.
    • The date is set. We are playing Valhalla a week from Thursday on Oct. 1st. I finally played a round this weekend. It wasn't too terrible after 2+ months without touching a club. I don't think there is much I can fix between now and then, but I wondered how much trouble I would get in if I set the net up in our family room, It's actually my drum room.
    • I made huge improvements in 6 months by working on 5SK skills  While reading LSW. He’s just got to put the work in. 
    • Thinking L to L helps me sync my swing and the ball flight is much better.  I too have a backswing sooo long that it sways me off the ball.  The L-2-L drill and thinking slow backswing like Matsuyama is helping.
